The Willamette Wildlife Mitigation Program
In 2010, the Bonneville Power Administration and the State of Oregon signed the Willamette River Basin Memorandum of Agreement Regarding Wildlife Habitat Protection and Enhancement. The Agreement established goals for mitigating the effects of the construction, inundation and operation of the Willamette River Basin Flood Control Projects in the Willamette Valley. Under the terms of the Agreement, Oregon and the BPA agreed to acquire at least an additional 16,880 acres of wildlife mitigation property to protect 26,537 acres (or more) by the end of 2025. Funding for the program comes from BPA’s electric ratepayers.
To accomplish this mitigation objective the parties established the Willamette Wildlife Mitigation Program managed by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife .The Agreement also provides for the implementation of a long-term account to fund habitat maintenance for the program when the agreement expires.
